Flower Works (Layers and Textures)

Group Rules:

Revised Group Rules
June 2014

This is a group for altered/digitally enhanced or manipulated flowers. Close-up manipulated photography, such as with textures and layers or a good dose of blurring – all must be obvious to the eye. Prefer if the flower itself was altered with a texture, but works may still be accepted if description outlines texture use AND it is immediately apparent. If the actual flower looks close to as-is, then use of obvious texture, filter use in the image background is obligatory. A slightly blurred background, such as results from using a macro lens, is not enough. Check featured images to get the idea.

Accepted are:
Paintings
Still Life
Related journals and writing.

PLEASE INCLUDE DETAILS FOR YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY IN THE DESCRIPTION OF HOW YOU ACHIEVED THE FINISHED WORK; TEXTURES ETC, If no description, your work may be rejected.

Not accepted:
- Images submitted which are not in PICTURE format. That is, no throw pillows or iPhone covers as the main format.
- Sharp images straight from the camera (must have lots of blur/dof or some effect applied)
- Straight flowers with only a black background.
- Faces, people, or part thereof, in any form.
- Butterflies, bees, ladybirds – any living thing.
- Garden scenes, creepers and the like
- Trees and gardens
- Fungi
- iPhone cases or T-shirts

Please read group messages – they are important and it is a good thing to participate now that you are a member.
